in copenhagen in december. in hopenhagen. [laughter] i love that. i am optimistic and more so now than ever before. this is the most important moral problem of our time, and i believe that with with your help and all of us working together that we are on our way to solving it. the political will is developing, and state by state the across the united states laws are being made to restrict carbon dioxide. there are 900 mayors who have formed a coalition, and many governor thes have come together -- governors have come together with commitments to curb carbon emissions. renales like the northeast and in the northwest. they have set their own standards. they're not waiting for the federal government. individual cities are committing to drastic cuts in electricity through energy efficiency and creating ways to invest in renewable energy. the youth are mobilizing, and large corporations are calling on the government to regulate greenhouse gases. many of them, many of these large businesses are leaving the u.s. chamber of commerce. now, you may have seen recently in the news that one -- there wer

that. >> like the commit in the copenhagen we'd spend hundreds of billions to help the developing world reduce carbon. the democrats want to spend money in the usa. they are spending money there. stuff like this i think is absolutely marginal for the congressional democrats. >> and goes with the decision to try the 9/11 terrorist in new york. political decisions to make to throw bones to the left. >> paul: big white house, special counsel that attorney genre rick holder appointed to look into whether the c.i.a. and bush administration officials should be indicted for the anti-terror policies. the he indicts, recommending indicting those, you will see a firestorm. >> paul: there is a good chance that he will make that recommendation. >> >> all right. we have to take one more break. when we come back, big events to shape 2010 and beyond. the panel's predictions are next. next. o >> paul: time now for our new year's predictions and it's on tape. so we're going to hold you to them, all right? play them next year. all right, dan. >> my prediction flows out of all the anxiety we've been pum

, which became a very critical issue in the discussions in copenhagen. >> abernethy: let me move to another point, kim especially. there is an investigation going on, or a review, or whatever is the right term for it, of catholic nuns in this country by the vatican. where is that going? and when will we know what comes of it? >> the vatican says that it wants to looknto the quality of life for u.s. sisters. that has created a huge amount of consternation here in the u.s., as there are questionnaires that have been sent to different communities of sisters with a lot of questions. many of them feel like, we're not going to answer some of these. so that's going to be moving forward throughout this year, as that sort of give-and-take moves forward. do they answer these questions? what do they say? how do they say it? what's really behd all of these questions in the first place? that's what a lot of people, not just among nuns but across the cathic community, want to know: what's really behind this study, this investigation? >> there's a great danger here. i think this could prove a v
to make that vote. >> it's like the commitment that obama made in copenhagen we're going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to help the developing world reduce carbon. the democrats want to spend the money in the old u.s. of a and they're spending money there and stuff like this is going to be marginal for congressional democrats. >> and also the decision to try the 9/11 terrorists in new york, these are political decisions that obama's making to throw bones to his left wing. >> paul: and a big wild card this year, the special counsel, that attorney general eric holder appoint today look into whether the cia and bush administration officials should be indicted for their anti-terror policies. if he indicts, recommending indicting some of those you're going to see a firestorm. >> there's a good chance he'll make that recommendation. >> paul: all right, dorothy. we have to take one more break and when we come back the big events that will shape 2010 and beyond. our panel's predictions are next.

the phrase global governance tossed about on a binding treaty to come out of the meeting in copenhagen. we have to remember this is not simply about co 2 or whether it is or is not going to cause the end of the world as we no it. it is more control for international entities and international bureaucracies over the daily lives of americans and other nations' citizens. we have to go back to find the real science behind this if anybody can find the data thrown out. the reality becomes for americans this is not in your best interest. if there are going to be determinations made about the future of energy in the united states and an environmental policy it should be done by the people of the united states through their duly elected servants in congress because if they don't like what those people do they can throw them out. >> greg: time for one question briefly. you wrote something called we the people wide awake for the newest berth of freedom. what does that mean? >> a pamphlet that we put out. it is far smaller than your book but it also has pictures. >> greg: excellent. did did you draw t

the international perspective, was he as successful as he wanted to be going to copenhagen? guest: no, he was not as successful as he wanted to be, but he does given the fact that the u.s. had not adopted any kind of climate legislation. he was able to at least achieved one u.s. objective, which was set up a way the international community can see whether major emerging economies like china, india, brazil, permitting voluntary greenhouse gas emissions cuts they say they are going to be. but he did not achieve the overall goal that many americans and europeans were looking for, which was a binding international agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions. host: and the reason why he could not that the binding agreement -- was it because he could not get enough international cooperation, or is it just that they did not want to hear what he was trying to say? guest: it was a combination of things. part of it was because the u.s. had not acted on his own -- on its own, he could not commit the u.s. as the number two greenhouse gas emissions -- the matter in the world, to cut emissions. in additi

of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei
see yesterday the guy that drew the mohammed bomb was attacked in his barn in copenhagen with an axe and a knife. it's - you know i mean if you can't even draw a cartoon about mo' ham ed who's not god, it's ridiculous. have you ever showed the cartoon on c-span? you can't let these people control us. i think you should show it. host: we did years ago. it's been three or four years though. caller: i don't know. salmon rush ty probably still has a hide out. these people - the so-called muslims that aren't extremists. can't speak out against them because that's against the koran. they'll kill you. see what it says. i don't see a lot of people speaking out against the religion because they can't do it. it's scary. host: thanks for the call. front page story. obama ties al qaeda to the plane scare. the president back at the white house tomorrow. ben from north carolina. good morning. is yemen the new front on terrorism? caller: i think since the place is no bigger than it is, the town of whatever it is, i think we should blow them off the map because that's where all these people are
